Football Boots > Football Boots Vault - adidas F50+ Football Boots

With hype building around the launch of the next generation adidas F50 football boots, the SoccerBible takes a retrospective look at some of the predecessors in the F50 series. These are the boots that have helped to mould and evolve the adidas F50 range for lightweight speed football boots.

In 2005, adidas followed up the original adidas F50 football boots with the F50+ range. The improvements to the adidas F50 included a more user friendly lacing system, and a more durable “Engineered Mesh” providing a distinctive design to the boot.

The innovative new TPU cage was designed to improve stability and durability, drawing inspiration from similar patterns in architecture that use cables and grids. For the adidas F50+ football boots, the cage provided a minimal way of creating flexible, lightweight and great fitting support for the players.

A mixed material upper was once again utilised for the adidas F50+ football boots, combining a high abrasion textile with a kangaroo leather lace-cover. The synthetic textile material offered a sock-like fit with low water absorption, whilst the innovative lace-cover increased the kicking area and provided optimal ball feel and touch.

Gearing the F50+ football boots for SPEED, adidas split the outsole to optimise weight and flexibility. Focusing the boot on speed and movement, the adidas F50+ football boots featured the X-Traxion stud system, providing maximum ground penetration with minimal stud pressure.

For comfort and fit, the adidas F50+ incorporated a new Velcro lace cover to create easy entry, a snug fit and a flat kicking surface. The slip-in sock-like construction enhanced fit, and was complimented by the adidas interchangeable Fusionframe insoles for customised performance.

Available in a variety of iconic colours, the adidas F50+ football boots were another popular addition to the F50 range! Stay tuned to the SoccerBible as we continue our countdown of the adidas F50 range, to see how the boots have progressed before our official and exclusive unveiling of the next generation of adidas F50 football boots!

I don't remember these boots that well but they are very nice. I wish that they would still produce limited amounts of these. And get ready for the new adidas F50 adiZero. They are not going to be able to customize the out sole any more but they should be lots lighter and easier to run in.

football not soccer said:

I think when the "framework" is a contrasting colour from the rest of the boot (like with the white one) it's a bit much but when it blends in or matches like with the other colours it's a very nice looking boots ;) my personal favourite is the black and blue one

it's also interesting to see how Nike took the design concept of architectural-styled support structures from this boot and gave it the name of "Flywire" which they now use in Superflys

TommyGun said:

Every time I see these boots I can't help to sing.....Spiderman, Spiderman! these things are ugly.  I guess we retired these for obscene colors and all shades of purple boots, but I'll go back to these before they come out with boots that sport baby pink with a leopard print Nike check.

When these boots came out Lionel Messi wore Nike Tiempo Legends not these F50s he must not have liked them but I think he changed to Adidas around when the F50.7s were around and F50.8s were coming in but I think they were good.

Have to agree with PredatorCTR360 - had a pair of F50s, in red and white, but had to stop wearing them as they were too uncomfortable (still have the blisters to prove it!). Also had F30s in black and white, which were some of the best boots I ever wore.
